Anonymous gift allows Tech to begin construction on Student-Athlete Performance Center
Thanks to an anonymous $15.2 million gift – the largest gift ever given to Virginia Tech – the Virginia Tech Athletics Department will proceed with plans to construct a state-of-the-art Student-Athlete Performance Center as part of a renovation and expansion of the fourth floor of the Jamerson Athletics Center. This new performance center will be approximately 17,000 square feet, and athletics department officials hope to start the $16.5 million project at some point in 2018, pending Board of Visitors approval. The primary purpose of the project is to meet the nutritional needs and provide dining space for all student-athletes in Tech’s 22 varsity sports. The plans also call for space to be dedicated for donor hospitality before and after athletics events and for recruiting areas, and the center connects directly to the concourse of Cassell Coliseum. In addition, the gift sets aside a maintenance fund to keep the new space up-to-date and visually appealing for years to come. For more on the project, please read this and this.
